I’ve seen a few posts saying either that Donald Trump choose the wrong apprentice. These posts have a hint of something other than logic and reason.
If you just went off of productivity, he was the better choice. Let’s take for granted that he is more educated. However, let’s not overlook his experience. He put it exactly right when he said he â€œruns businesses, while she just writes about themâ€. Randall is the CEO and founder of BCT Partners (bctpartners.com) a successful small business.
As project manager, Randall won 3 out of 3 tasks. On the other hand, Rebecca has only won 1 out of 3 tasks as a PM. In addition, her one winning task had a good deal to do with Randall being her only teammate.
Also, loyalty is a great thing, but she showed throughout that she would allow it to possibly sabotage her (even bringing Toral back at the end).
In the same vein, I have never seen so many fired contestants praise one person so much. Not to mention, when there was a chance to trade a teammate, time and again, teams always choose Randall.
So, exactly why was Randall the wrong choice?
Lastly, in response to Randall not agreeing to their being a second apprentice: why should he have? In a past season, there was a â€œcloseâ€ race between Bill and Kwame (guess who’s the black guy). Kwame was from Goldman Sachs, and had a Harvard MBA. Bill was an entrepreneur who started cigarsaroundtheworld.com. Most people thought it was a tight one, but Kwame had the credentials to take it all the way. Obviously, Trump felt differently. Oh well, it’s seems to have worked out because Trump has extended Bill’s contract. So, why was Randall selfish?
